Early Thoughts on the Buffalo Bills Preseason Schedule: Week 2- at Minnesota Vikings
Earlier this week the NFL announced the 2012 preseason schedule, with each team playing their usual four games in four weeks, starting August 9th and going through August 30th. The 2012 Buffalo Bills preseason schedule has some interesting match-ups, starting home with the Washington Redskins in week one, going to Minnesota in week two, playing home against Pittsburgh in week three, and ending with an away game at Detroit in week four.
This week I will be breaking down my early (OK, really early) thoughts on the preseason schedule and match-ups for the Bills, next up is week two vs. the Minnesota Vikings.
Week 2- at Minnesota Vikings
This will be the first chance for Bills fans see their team in a road environment for the 2012 season. While the game is just a preseason contest, it could be a nice measuring stick for the Bills against a team who, like the Bills, is in a transition and looking to get back into the playoffs.
The Bills will be looking to play well against another young quarterback as they try and take down the Vikings Christian Ponder, as well as the rest of the offense.
Looking at the Vikings, the Bills will be getting a break on the defensive side of the ball as Minnesota star running back Adrian Peterson will be out of the game with a torn ACL that he suffered last season.
Next up in the preseason for the Bills will be a home match-up in week three vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers, make sure to check back for my early thoughts.
